What are Course Evaluations? Course evaluations are a series of questions pertaining to a course of instruction. At Lincoln, the faculty committee on Assessment and Evaluation oversees the development and review of course evaluation questions. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Research and Planning coordinates the implementation, analysis, reporting and dissemination of the data.
Why do we have Course Evaluations? The primary purpose of course evaluations is to empower students with the opportunity to provide feedback regarding the content, delivery and instruction provided in the respective course. Feedback from the student perspective allows faculty to reflect upon, assess and revise their pedagogy (teaching) to further enhance the student learning experience. In addition, course evaluations are used in the promotion, tenure and severance process for faculty.
